Friends of Hackmatack NWR received a Stewardship Challenge Grant from the Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation (ICECF). By fulfilling a number of requirements by November 1, 2021, Friends of Hackmatack can receive up to $27,000 from the Foundation to spend on land stewardship activities on the Tamarack SouthEast Site. The funds will be used to convert a farm field north of Richmond Burton Community High School into prairie and to plant native woodland plants, shrubs and trees in the oak woodlands.
